Activity Steps


Note: ASHA CEUs cannot be reported to ASHA unless your ASHA member number is included in your profile.

The authors discuss the findings of a study conducted to assess speech pathology students' awareness and knowledge about palliative care concepts and of the role of SLPs in palliative care. Findings showed that while SLP students were familiar with a concept or term, they were frequently unable to explain the concept accurately. These findings have implications for the design and content of education and training about palliative care in academic and clinical settings.
